The second semester is now well underway at CHS, and students seem ready to put those new Ipods, Play Stations, and WIIs away long enough to concentrate on their studies.
Two members of Senator Pride, Sarah Piggot and Susan Drozdoff, both math teachers at Carson High, organized a group of students and formed a new club at CHS this year. The club is called "C-Unity" and the students help promote pride and school spirit.
They hosted a reception in December to honor 70 students nominated by staff. A spring semester reception will be in May. C-Unity also put together gift baskets for the custodian staff at Christmas time with donations given by staff members.
Senator Pride is proud to host the first annual CHS Alumni Night on Friday which coincides with the varsity basketball match up against Douglas High School. We would love to see many alumni attend this game. Think how fun it will be to see some of your former classmates and friends. The fun begins with the varsity girls' game at 5:15 p.m. followed by the varsity boys' game at 7 p.m.
The evening will include a raffle for CHS alumni only and halftime contests. Special recognition will be given to all alumni in attendance, so be sure to wear your biggest smile and your blue and white attire. During the evening stop by the alumni table as we would like to collect current information from you for the alumni directory.
For information or to RSVP, contact Blair Roman at: firstname.lastname@example.org or at 283-1738.
History teacher Kelly Hogan is in his third year of leading students in the Mock
Trial competition. Mock trial is a group whereby students learn first hand about the work of trial attorneys, understand the judicial system, develop critical thinking and enhance communication skills, while preparing a case for competition. The students meet weekly to prepare their cases and will compete Feb. 9. Hogan is always looking for trial attorneys to help prepare his students for competition. If interested, contact him at email@example.com.
